As you already know California is in a severe drought and we are doing everything we can to conserve water, however…

There is an el Nino pattern that the meteorologists are predicting to be really bad this year, meaning a lot of rain is coming our way and apparently it's coming soon. I know you must be thinking, “We need the rain so what is there to worry about?”. This is true however if we receive a lot of rain in a short amount of time what usually happens is flooding. Here is a short list of things you can do to prepare for the rain:

  1. Get Flood Insurance – call us at 888-512-8878 and we will be happy to provide you with a quote. It isn’t as expensive as you would think and you will have peace of mind knowing your belongings are protected including your home. If you are a renter, you also should get flood insurance to cover all your personal property.
  2. Clean out your gutters.
  3. Clear debris from drains.
  4. Make sure there is sufficient drainage around your property.

It’s as simple as that to get prepared for the change of seasons. If the rains really do come you can sit back, relax and watch your neighbors run around frantically trying to keep their property from flooding. 

Here’s a link to the National Insurance Flood Program with their comprehensive list of additional things you can do to get prepared: https://www.floodsmart.gov/floodsmart/pages/preparation_recovery/pr_overview.jsp
